Today (03-May-2017) — New Jersey

Backyard spring nature in New Jersey. I took some flowers inside to photograph in a lightbox with a macro lens. The main reason was because of the wind outside making it difficult to focus.

 


 

Nine-Years Ago (03-May-2008) — Colorado

I spent the day at Rocky Mountain National Park. Early spring, and the upper elevations are still closed due to snow. There were a number of birds and mammals looking for food. I finally was able to identify one of the birds that I took a picture of that day as a Grey-headed Junco. I also spent some time using a 24 mm f/3.5 PC-E lens to do some landscape images.
